Specialty Steel Treating Adds Vacuum Hardening Capacity
Commercial heat treater Specialty Steel Treating in East Granby, CT, USA recently added this really impressive Ipsen vacuum furnace which can be seen behind (from the left), Ryan Kollmorgen, Jordan Montgomery, Justin Kollmorgen and Andres Bernal (Ion Heat). Specialty is a family owned commercial heat treater and one of the largest in the USA with large facilities in Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fraser, Michigan. While the Michigan locations of Specialty are very strongly based on the automotive and bearing industries the CT location is quite different in that it focuses on the aerospace and firearms industries. This is a really impressive location and features a number of very impressive vacuum furnace alongside atmosphere equipment. Quite typical of the industry is that fact that Dennis Kollmorgen has run the plant for years and his sons Ryan and Justin, who have both worked for Specialty for quite some time have done a tremendous job in the industry helping to run this plant. Jordan Montgomery a third generation heat treater is also featured in this photo. Andres Bernal (who we can also see in this picture) probably needs no introduction as the CEO of one of the fastest growing Plasma Nitriding supplier in the world.
